dopewars is a strategy game in which the player takes the part of an illegal drug dealer on the streets of New York. The player must accumulate money and avoid the police.[3] It is a clone of an older MS-DOS game, Dopewars, which is itself based on the 1980's game Drug Wars.[4]


  1. COPYING file in the source code.
  2. The CONTRIBUTING file specifies that copyright-free sounds are required. However since the website of the original sound author is defunct, and since the game provides no licence information apart from the COPYING and LICENCE files, which are GPLv2, we have no choice but to assume that the licence also applies to the sound files rather than them being copyright free.
